Student profiles


Julien de Sainte Croix

Audiovisual Technology graduate

“The engagement with industry is fantastic. I heard from a careers councillor at school that RMIT was great with its practical placement and industry involvement—I’ve finally got to experience this first hand.

“Initiatives such as the Industry Advisory Board are actually amazing, I remember doing my practical placement at the Melbourne Convention Centre last year and learning that not only had one of my teachers been a manager there previously, but that one of the technical operations senior heads supervising me was on the advisory board for my course—I could not ask for any greater involvement from a program!”
